In this morning session we will be getting together to make glycerine soaps using 'melt and pour' ingredients. This means that the soap base has been made, which allows you to re-melt and get creative with colour, form and fragrance. Unlike cold-process soap, this soap does not have to cure for a few weeks and will be ready to use straight away, so no deferred gratification! After this we will also make shampoo using bases that we mix ourselves and add essential oils to. You can also add herbal ingredients like nettle or rosemary if you wish. All the ingredients we use in this event are vegetarian.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE TICKET IS NON REFUNDABLE AND NON TRANSFERABLE.
This is a non-profit group. Each meeting we put some of the money towards equipment and some towards supplies. Essential oils for shampoo will be provided free, but if you want to add essential oils to your soap we have them here for you to add as a separate cost, so don't forget to bring some extra pounds. We buy these in larger bottles to bring down the cost for you, so it works out better than buying them in small bottles in a shop. If you have a mould already, please do bring it, otherwise we have moulds here for sale for about £2.00. Please bring an apron with you and a flat bottomed bag to take you your soaps.
Address and further details will be e-mailed to you nearer the time. The nearest tube is Kew Gardens underground station on the District Line. We hope to see you there.
